Public Hearings For Development Playa Santos - There is so much confusing information regarding the environmental permits for the proposed residential and hotel development in Punta Lobos known as "Playa Santos", we are requesting that SEMARNAT (the federal environmental protection agency), hold public information hearings in Todos Santos to allow the developers to present their environmental impact study to the community and provide an opportunity for the people of Todos Santos to ask questions. These hearings must be requested by a significant number of residents. You can download a form letter requesting the hearings at goo.gl/uajhD. You can leave the signed letter at Cafe La Esquina, Cafe Todos Santos, Cafe Felix or the office of Amerimex and we will see that they are delivered to SEMARNAT. - Agua Vale Mas Que Oro, info [- at -] aguavalemasqueoro.com, 612 145-0050
